Posted: Wed, Sep 18, 2002, 7:32 AM ET (1132 GMT)
NASA announced Tuesday that it was canceling a project to develop a new computer system to handle shuttle launches. The Checkout and Launch Control System (CLCS) had doubled its original $200 million budget and was running four and a half years behind schedule. The approximately 100 NASA employees working on the project will be reassigned, but some of the 460 contractors for United Space Alliance also involved could lose their jobs. Reports that the project's demise was imminent were first published by SpaceRef.com in late August.
